"Between Us" as written by and Michael J/anderson Bonagura....
Some days I'm content to stay at home
But other days I get restless
I can't stand to be alone
Okay, I've been known to cry in my sleep
But dreams often show what you don't want to know
When you're awake you're not so deep

Could be a bad habit I need to break
Or some kind of sentiment
That I could learn to fake
Maybe it's the devil in my ear
Averting his eyes and whispering lies
So that no one can hear
There isn't anything between us

Many times I listened to the things that people say
But many times I disagree
And I see it a different way
Could say that it looks and tastes so real
But I wouldn't mind if I went blind
Maybe then I'd learn how to feel

Yes man, I'm so glad to be alive
It's a beautiful day and my girl is okay
So we go out for a drive
Yes sir, I haven't felt my right in my head
There's no getting dressed when I get depressed
I don't want to leave my bed
There isn't anything between us

    General Commentwow, this song has got to be about me or something. I really like the riff and the notes that BB hits going of one verse going into the bridge to the other verse. the lyrics just straight up explain how I feel sometimes. this band should be more popular. all in all, a good everyday song. (the only line i don't get is "There isn't anything between us", which is the refrain, it just doesn't seem to fit, but it sounds good)

    General CommentThis is an amazing song, so catchy. I just have to sing along every time I hear it!
    I think the 'There isn't anything between us' bit is about him getting confused, and not being sure about his feelings. Just as he is always changing his mind in everyday life, which he talks about in the sons, he changes his feelings about this person.
    'Could be a bad habbit I need to break
    Or some kind of sentiment
    That I could learn to fake
    Maybe it's the devil in my ear
    Averting his eyes and whispering lies
    So that no one can hear
    There isn't anything between us'
    He's trying to explain why he hasn't got feelings for someone when he feels he should do.
    Anyway, really great song!
